headerRise of the Tomb Raider was released on January 28, 2016 by Square Enix. The game was developed by Crystal Dynamics. Rise of the Tomb Raider is a third person action adventure.

Lara must use her wits and survival skills, form new alliances, and ultimately embrace her destiny as the Tomb Raider.

Rise of the Tomb Raider maintains much of the same dynamics as previous releases. The crafting system makes things like .different arrow types (poison, climbable, fire, grenade, rope) by scavenging materials from plants and animals in the game’s harsh environment.

The game has a weather system and it also manages animals etc with day and night dynamics.

Combat has been redesigned with more options for stealth and sneak attacks. Lara can confuse enemies by using the environment; hiding behind bushes or in trees, shooting bows on objects, throwing molotov cocktails and fog bottles, or avoiding combat altogether by climbing trees or traveling across roof tops.

The grappling hook has returned after being MIA for several releases.

Climbing up walls etc is back too, so over all this game returns to its roots with more action.
